saying a lot of these people don't even think i was born here and he wasn't even sure what he meant by here. that's the theology of it, chris. there's a theological belief at the heart of this that obama -- the president is somehow not only not legitimate, not american but not even from here. that's an element of theology with these people. that's where everything starts. goes back to birtherism and back to their rejection, sort of like tissue rejection of him from the body politic, they have never, ever accepted his jittery. >> i think that's cosmic thing is totally true you said. just down to the narrow conversation i was having with that u.s. congressman. i said if you're for ted cruz, we know he was born to an american mother born in canada. i believe he's an american. i'm a pretty liberal guy about this. most are. the most crazy case was donald trump saying he was born in kenya. therefore if you accept cruz as a legitimate president you should accept obama as president. that was a narrow question to put to this character and he wouldn't answer it, even in the narrow bounds i se

of reasons. i believe in doing procedures that are necessary to make sure that we don't have tyranny by the majority, as some say. but this has become just down right abusive and is based purely on let's stop this president. for example, republicans claim president obama was trying to pack the d.c. circuit court of appeals. but the facts don't back them up. only one obama nominee has been confirmed to four nominees for bush and eight nominees for reagan. so how would he be stacking the court when he's only had one nominee that was approved and he was putting in nominations for empty seats? the seats need to be filled, angela. >> they absolutely need to be filled, but, rev, on a larger scale we need to be celebrating that today a substantial advancement was made. we can now bask in rnr which is the reid rule. we still have a major fight ahead. >> re-rule. not rest and relaxation. don't send the wrong message. >> we know you don't rest, rev. but to that point we now have a fair fight. we are now more on a level playing field. we know the constitution calls for majority rules. that is h
painted this in strong terms and strong black and white, but i have to tell you. i don't see a republican agenda, except to destroy obama. the president's enemies have tried to destroy, kill, defund, block or destroy everything in his program. the president in contrast has made it his goal to fight to extend rights to minority, the uninsured and the oppressed. his opponents are trying to take away these rights. the opponents of the president prevented millions of people from having access to health care under the law. they've suppressed voting rights of minorities, specifically african-americans. they have derailed the principles of fairness. let's look at the first one of these segments. republicans in 24 states now have rejected the expansion of medicaid. as a result, there are working americans whose access to the insurance under the law has been voided. ast astonishingly it is a badge of honor for those like rand paul. here he is attacking chris christie. >> on the case of the new jersey governor, i think embracing obama care, expanding medicaid in his state is very expensive and not

told me all those remarks were -- his office told me those remarks were taken out of context. i don't know how you take those remarks out of context. we put up the whole videos. >> i think context is the right question to use here. wayne slater, this question. if this guy gets further in terms of power on the right wing, senator cruz, if he gets higher -- he's pretty high right now. up along with rand paul. people will say how come we didn't know this about his father. i think people want to know about it. they'll say it's not fair to talk about a family member. i think he's more than just a family member based on what i'm seeing here. he's out in the political arena himself. he wasn't dragged into the political arena. he wasn't simply an embarrassing relative like ronald nixon or billy carter. he went into the political arena. he chose to have us listen to him and now we are. your thoughts, wayne. who is he and what role does he play? >> david's got it exactly right. i've spent time with rafael cruz on the road with ted cruz. he is very, very, very close to his son in every way tha

there's a sort of a code of respect among presidents, recent presidents. they don't call each other names like this. cheney, is he exempt there the rule? >> no, he's not exempt there the rule. but he made himself exempt. i don't think you'll hear george w. bush making a statement like that. but dick cheney has a different agenda. first of all, his daughter is run fog are the senate in wyoming as a tea party candidate, rather absurdly, since she's basically from the beltway. and dick cheney is trying to help her out by appealing to the tea party worst. i think that's what's going on, number one. number two i think republicans more generally, chris, have always been infuriated by the high personal standarding of president barack obama. by him sz a candidate. by him as a president. by the fact that he has seen to many of his supporters and to most americans, to be an honest, straightforward, decent guy. and this somehow is especially infuriating to republicans. it drives them crazy, and they're doing everything they can now given the opportunity to try to drag him down to their level.

manager? >> i don't think much. it wouldn't be open for very long. there wouldn't be too many people calling i wouldn't think, but i wouldn't know. i've never been open on a thanksgiving in the ten years i've worked for that company. >> all right, tony rohr, thanks for joining us. a lot of people admire your tenacity to stick up for your workers. i'm ed schultz. politics nation with al sharpton starts right now. happy thanksgiving to you. >>> and happy thanksgiving to you. tonight's lead, a reality check for the right wing turkey. on this day, this day before thanksgiving, president obama gave america a clear choice. between those who want to help the less fortunate and those who want to make their lives worse. but he began the day with the annual tradition, the pardon of the white house turco. this year the lucky ones were popcorn and caramel. >> the competition was stiff, but we can officially declare that popcorn is the winner. proving -- there you go. proving that even a turkey with a funny name can find a place in politics. and now, before these turcos get away, with the
to at least president john f. kennedy. popcorn vied against feathered riv rival caramel in an online poll. don't worry. both gobble to the end of their lives. >> we can officially declare that popcorn is the winner. proving -- there you go. proving that even a turkey with a funny name can find a place in politics. as for caramel, he's sticking around, and he's already busy raising money for his next campaign. >> unfortunately for the commander in chief, this was a brief reprieve from the pressures of the presidency. cautious white house officials are already urging staunch supporters to stay off the website this weekend to help prevent a potential crash from a second rush of users. after the glitchtastic debut october 1st. and the administration today delayed online enrollment by one year, shifting to an offline route instead. but for both the health law's supporters and opponents, it's personal. with each side using the holiday as a vehicle to spread their message. the democratic national committee launched its own website, your republican uncle.com with handy notes for defending the affordab
women will vote for another woman at their own peril, that they don't believe this will happen, which is one of the reasons why these three women are getting together. they're going to try and heparins get out the women's vote. if the matchup is hillary versus christie, is it a foregone conclusion that she's going to win the vast majority of the women's vote? >> i think most women wind up voting for democrats but it's a little more complicated than that. democrats dominate among minority women. latino women and african-american women pull it in for the democratic party. unmarried women are really the swing constituency in the overall female vote. >> imagine if they start to get out the vote with that group in much bigger numbers because they have not voted in huge numbers. >> typically democrats are very good at bringing ot constituencies. the issues where republicans have hurt themselves, not necessarily among married white women but unmarried women and that's a huge x factor that plays to hillary's advantage. >> i want to bring in donna edwards, democrat from maryland. congresswoman
resonates. if they vote that down, they're losing hispanic voters and i don't care who the candidates are. they can vote on a jobs bill. >> well, i hope you agree with my point. the reason they don't want to do that, it forces them to choose between the haters out there who don't want immigrants and what the president is pushing. >> absolutely. but make them vote on that. you know, they're attacking the affordable care act, and you're right. the affordable care act polls better when it's called the affordable care act than it does when it's called obama care. but make them vote on a jobs bill. and another distinction. 41 times the republicans in the house have wasted the nation's time voting to repeal the affordable care act. but they haven't passed a jobs bill. keep sending them jobs bill and make them vote on that. >> i agree with that. yeah. anyway, what i want to do is just change the conversation. because we're not going to get a report card on obama care on health care through november 30th or march. this is going to be an endless, endless woodpecker thing. the governor mentioned vo
of his presidency in his public life. don't forget this is a guy who ran as the change himself. he said we were the change we're waiting for. he was the change. that meant he and his own story embody the idea of community in america. and because of that, he was ideally equipped to help bring that message and reality to the middle class in america and to people struggling to get into the middle class. that was the narrative he built with david axelrod. barack obama has to run a third campaign now and recover the narrative of who he is in relation to what he wants to see happen. which is american community of which the health care plan in its best hopes he wanted it to be. to get it there is the challenge, but to explain the big surround. i think he needs his people back to run a third campaign. >> the same people? >> the same people. i would bring axelrod because because he was the guy that did a great job of helping barack obama exchange his narrative. i think that's what barack obama has to do. he has to explain what he's doing there. what is the why of it? because it's the why that's
a great. you know, i'm accused of a lot of things but i don't think i'm stupid enough to go around saying this will be like shopping on amazon or travelocity a week before the website open physician i thought it wouldn't work. >> good morning, it's friday, november 15th. boy, what a press conference yesterday. what a twist and turn in the continuing debate of the affordable care act. we have nicole wallace and harold ford jr. we have the former government of vermont howard dean and in washington we have the anchor for bbc world news america, katty kay. what a day yesterday. my gosh. we have a lot to talk about. we have politics to talk about, the policy. doctor, you have a lot of concern about it. the democratic uprising in the house and senate that may have led to this. first let's take it down to d.c. with katty. get us up to date on everything that happened yesterday. >> health care all the time. two headlines do say a lot about the fight over obama care. in the "wall street journal," obama retreats. and in "usa today," health law shakes the presidency. with democrats threatening to vo
to put my turkey in a thing in the yard. >> a deep fryer. >> i don't think i want that. but they've talked me into it. i had to buy a special size and i'm fearing someone is going to get hurt. >> he's trolling mika. >> is that very bad for you? >> it macs the turkey come alive. >> in peanut oil. >> why don't you eat some fourteench fries in. >> i have been talked into it. i have to bring the turkey over at 1:00. he's going to take care of it and give it back to me. >> it will taste good. >> it will? ion if my parents will like that. that's what's happening. none of are you cooking. are any of you shopping on friday? i don't understand this black friday thing. all right. i would suggest others don't as well. right? >> it can wait until saturday. >> go online or save your money. >> go online. >> okay. so we're all getting ready for the holiday. it's one of the busiest travel days of the year. of course, on coup, the amount of storm system is threatening to spoil the thanksgiving holiday. is that possible? today most of the northeast and mid-atlantic are expected to be pummelled wit
. >> this is the gop plan for the rest of the year. why? they don't have anything else to do. >> nobody in this country believes the republicans want to fix the website. >> the american people do not want to see a kangaroo court. >> this is not a partisan hearing. >> the pac panic is set in. >> the president didn't honor the commitment the federal government made. >> i'm inclined to agree with bill clinton. >> hillary clinton is looking to run away from obama care. >> we're better off with this law than without it. >> i don't think this is ever going to work. >> i'll join anything that won't have me. let me in, earth, wind and fire! >>> a very good afternoon to you, and in spite of aggressive attacks by its opponents, in spite of zealous campaigns to prevent its passage and implementation, it may surprise some of you to learn, the patient protection and affordable care act is, in fact, alive and kicking. just moments ago, we got the long awaited enrollment numbers for the month of october. hhs secretary, kathleen sebelius, announcing on a conference call that just over 106,000 signed up on the aca priv
and have received an apology from me. but they don't want just words. what they want is whether we can make sure that they are in a better place and that we meet that commitment. i'm the head of this team. we did fumble the ball on it and what i'm going to do is make sure we get it fixed. there have been times where i thought we were kind of, you know, slapped around a little bit, unjustly. this one's deserved. right? it's on us. but we can't lose sight of the fact that the status quo before the affordable care act was not working at all. >> crucial point that has gotten lost in the coverage over the last month. that part of the speech, the fumble the ball part, that's what got the headlines. but the most important thing that happened today was president obama marking a new chapter in the tempestuous frenemy-like relationship between the health insurance industry and his administration. from the very beginning, this has been one of the most complicated relationships in all of politics. up to and including the creation of the affordable care act, the insurance companies said they were on boa
. and by the way, there would be no refund on the tuition. you see, congress is special. congress -- you don't even get handcuffed. there is no doubt that radel got off easy. he was given holy smokes, how is he going to deal with this, a year's probation? and a huge $250 fine. according to police, radel spent $250. that's what he spent. $250 on his three-and-a-half grams of cocaine. so i'd say that the $250 fine is probably a pretty damn good deal he got from the judge. radel also got one year probation, another good deal. possession of cocaine in washington, d.c., if you're an average schmuck out there, could land you 180 days in jail and up to $1,000 fine. but you see, he's a congressman. says he wants to stay in the congress. so they sure as hell ain't going to throw the book at him. you see, if he were a poor african-american youth with no lawyer, no attorney, no legal help, no backup, there is no doubt that he would be facing jail time. because that's just kind of how it works. this is a disturbing double standard, and oh, by the way, the story get worse. in september, redel voted for legislat
, which is understandable. and then some people just don't like the concept because they think we would attract crazy people and they don't want crazy people in their building. >> the clients run the gamut, from construction workers to administrative assistants. from bheem are angry at their bosses to people who want exercise. >> is there something you're angry about or here for fun? >> i'm here for fun. i can probably think of things that make me mad. >> we all can. i was saying i've been on the phone with the dmv for an hour. i was angry when i got in there. >> the stuff to destroy comes from the street. making it cost effective. >> people constantly have trash every day all day. we use all of that. we go on pickup days and we pick up the large items that people don't want anymore or can't be used anymore. those are the items that we use to operate off of. >> today the anger room has three rooms that can be set up like anything you want. but donna sees this as just the start of -- >> if all goes well, in five years, i think you'll see a huge facility, 10,000 square feet, loud announce
lost to obama by 14 points by moderates. they keep relearning the same less some, but they don't absorb it. and i don't think they're going to absorb it. >> i think the definition of a zealot who after they lose said if they'd only done more. cuccinelli was the problem from day one. instead of saying we blew it by running too extreme they say the moderates didn't back the extremists. therefore it's moderate's fault. >> why are they so zealous? they hate rino. >> describe what that is. >> that's a republican in name only. they think the people that are bringing the republican party down. >> so the guy running for reelection in trenton should have gone down to richmond to campaign for the other guy. and since he didn't, it's his fault. >> the people who are the problem with the party didn't help. so that's the problem. cuccinelli, we talked about this last night, was about as good a tea party candidate as you can get. he had statewide name recognition. he's been working in virginia for years. and even so, he couldn't beat terry mcauliffe who i think is a rather tainted democratic nominee.
that form the lattice work of kinship in our lives. people that we love that don't share our world views. that have different ways of thinking and different politics. that brut fact is often a source of stress. it is also kind of a wonderful thing. it would be a sad, impoverished world if we had no relationships with people of different political views. the fact of family get-togethers has given birth to an entire genre, how to talk to your family members about "x" at the holiday genre. the president offered this advice for a tweet. when your loved ones get together this holiday season, remember to talk to them about health insurance. he also launched this website how to talk to your relatives about health care in four easy steps accompanied by a video. >> hi, mom. >> hi, sweetie. you almost here. >>yeah, i'll be there in a few. >> good, because we have something really important to talk to you about. >> what the heck do they want to talk to me about? >> your mother and i have joined a service. ♪ we're daf punk. >> i'm a which hizard. >> i'm a daf punk. >> grandma is a dragon. >> what
for people to be asking the 2016 question? >> i don't think it's too early. i think it's part of a process. >> this isn't an issue about bullying. this is an issue of mine and jon's relationship where i may -- i've taken stuff too far. >>> all right. we've got a lot to get to this afternoon from chris christie, the newly crowned prince of the gop, to failed talks with iran, to the explosive story unfolding this week in the nfl. and, yes, the gop's benghazi obsession. but, first, we want to give you an update from the philippines where officials say 10,000 people could be dead from friday's devastating typhoon. characterized as a state of calamity. last night u.s. defense secretary chuck hagel announced u.s. forces are headed to the pacific islands to aid in search and rescue efforts. among the organizations that you can contact for information on how to help, you can reach out to the red cross, unicef, save the children. and we will be posting a additional information on our facebook page. >>> we're now going to turn back to politics. coming off his re-election win tuesday, new jersey gove

care roll out. >> i don't think you can what will happen next year, but i will tell you this. democrats stand tall in support of the affordable care act. jobs will be the major issue as they always are. this is an issue that has to be dealt with. it's a political issue so we will run away from it. >> she couldn't say for sure. the idea. think about a month ago she would have been saying of course democrats will pick up seats. pelosi tried to downplay the affection by the democrats who voted a day after the president presented his own so-called fix to the health care law. it was the largest break any bill so far this year. all but three who are part of the committee's front line program. the most vulnerable incumbents voted for the bill. the democratic leader said they were just protecting themselves from getting steam rolled by attack ads. >> what you saw with those people who had real serious concerns, the fact of the matter is about 30 of them and i have talked to them were insulating themselves against sound bytes. >> does that work? >> that's the unknown question. they have gotten p
. the hobby lobby says the evangelical christian religious beliefs of the company's owners mean that they don't want their employees to have access to contraception in their health insurance. another case was a mennonite owned wood working business from pennsylvania. mennonites are sometimes confused with the amish, but -- not believing in health insurance itself all together. so if your boss is a mennonite or is an amish guy who thinks that health insurance itself is wrong, does that mean that you don't get health insurance at work even if otherwise the law would say you had to? that's what's so fascinating about this case. it is the rick santorum, the pill kills folks they're an outgrowth of the anti-abortion movement, they think contraception is the same thing as abortion and they're against them both. if you're against birth control these folks are your folks. these are the folks who put person hood on the ballot in mississippi and colorado and other places, in which case if those things pass, all abortion would be criminalized, all of it. but also the iud would be criminalized because th
a religious freedom claim, then what's to keep any company from saying we don't want to serve jews, we don't want to hire gays. >> that's the slippery slope here. >> that's what the supreme court has to be very concerned about. >> so the question here, is can a corporation hold constitutionally protected religious beliefs. what if the west borrow baptist church started a greeting card company and decided not to give -- effectively decide if a company can pick and choose which laws it will follow, based on the personal religious beliefings of its owners. >> joining us now is justice correspondent pete williams, and pete, why did this case come before the court. there's a split at the lower federal court level about whether or not these parties have a claim. >> that's right, the hobby lobby won its case in the fifth circuit court of appeals in denver. the constitution does give personal rights to corporations, the supreme court has given a number of them over the years, including most recently, freedom of speech rights. the third circuit court of appeals t other one the supreme court agreed
, because why wouldn't they want people to get that, you know, medicaid? why? >> reporter: we don't know if laura johnson voted for her new representative. we know her representative won by advocating for her health. joining me now is tracy washington, president and ceo of louisiana justice institute. tracy, how big a surprise was this result for louisiana's 5th? >> well, i think it was a shocker to most of the republicans out there. it was hope springs eternal for all rational democrats like me, and hopefully, rational republicans. >> do you think that the medicaid expansion played a pivotal role here? how big a part of the political conversation has it been in the state of louisiana? >> well, it's been huge, frankly, chris, because democrats and republicans were pushing this governor to accept this money from the federal government, and at the end of the day, i think what may have pushed vance over the top was the fact that, look, folks, this isn't free money. you paid for this. and in his stump speeches, he said, of course we want to accept this money from the federal government for m
york post." >> we have another guest. going all in. i don't know. >> okay. >> holy cow. >> all right. stop that. >> it's horrible. in washington we have former white house press secretary and msnbc contributor robert gibbs. >> good morning. >> can i ask you something? can we start -- is there something else in the news other than the affordable care act? >> no. i think this is worth listening to. we need to put this in perspective. yes. we have toronto mayor in this block. if you zip it i'll get that in. can you do that? that's my dangling, i'll show the toronto mayor. >> but i have to sit and listen to more disastrous news. >> it's not that disastrous but not characterized well in the roll out and they are paying for it. because when you have robert gibbs stories of people get moved or upgraded or not able to go to their doctors that's going to get in the news and i'm surprised, i'm so surprised that wasn't considered as something they needed to make sure. 5% -- >> did you see -- >> i did. hell of a story on nick sabin. >> the gitmo story. he's talking about you know we aldo have co
. and he got there in no small part, thanks to hurricane sandy. but don't take our word for it. >> my pledge to you tonight is i will govern with the spirit of sandy. >> the spirit of sandy that christie evoked so many times last night is one thing. but the facts of the recovery are something else entirely. new jersey received billions of dollars in federal aid to rebuild, and 1.8 billion of that came from the u.s. department of housing and urban development to get people back in their homes. to get that money, christie promised that 60% of the funds would be reserved for low to moderate income households. right now, it appears that chris christie is breaking that promise. of course, we don't know for sure. >> fair share housing center, an advocate group says they're frustrated, and talks of the failure to provide the most basic documents, on why thousands of families have been denied the most basic necessaries since sandy. >> the christie administration has released no information on how the money is being spent. what we do know came out of a lawsuit that alleged that the christie ad
. >> texas is a big state. we don't want to assume from top to bottom the state is incense tich -- in sensitive or blind to what you are doing. are there people in the state that have come to your aid? >>some have. not a ton. we have seen a tremendous amount of creativity and willingness to work. at state government we passed two laws that better protect workers. protections to hundreds of thousand of workers didn't happen before. we still have a long way to go. when we go to the texas legislature and talk about basic things like can workers hatch rest breaks? work outside in 100 degree heat. the last two legislative sessions they said no. >> deon't want to give breaks i 100-degree heat. >> don't want hem them to have legal right. and over a third don't get waume water. employers don't provide water on the work sites. >> how does that compare to other states? >> other states have rest breaks. only thing in austin, the city where one of our offices is lope kated, we have been able to get 60,000 workers through a local ordinance, the right to paid rest breaks. we are going to be f
. forefits the rest. his arraignment is in january. as to how he came up with the $900. i don't know. perhaps friends or supporters. because as you say, he said he had $100 to his name. he is in debt $2.5 million by the way. who does he owe $2 million to? it has to be his attorneys, o'merar a o'mera and west. >> i want to go back to his wife, shellie zimmerman, she is divorcing him. said in september about george zimmerman. >> in my opinion, hecibl invincible. he is making reckless decision sz. i have been married to a person for almost seven years and i don't think i ever really knew him at all. >> joy, that was right after she had an incident with, her father did, with george zimmerman. in which in the end they decided not to get involved by pressing charges because, it could be complicated for her but that invincible -- feeling -- seems to be, what, what is being demonstrat demonstrated. >> remember the track record is that his encounters with law enforcement, ended in his favor. an additional incident with a police officer, he was accused, charged with battering an officer. ended up being
. one is whether corporationses have this right and, secondly, if they don't, as corporations, can the individual owners assert freedom of religion claims? by the way, on hobby lobby, they don't say we reject the entire contraceptive mandate. what they say is four elements of it. four things. two versions of the morning after pill, two kinds of iuds they say would be tantamount to abortion, so they don't want to provide coverage for them. but, you're right. it's a question the supreme court has never before addre addressed. does a for profit corporation, can it object to a federal law based on religious freedom? it's never answered that before, so that's one of the reasons why this is a big teal. >> yeah, a very big deal if they haven't answered it. and when you talk to obama administration officials and the folks at the justice department, they feel they went out of their way to exempt purely religious nonprofit institutions. they really wanted to leave some space for them and that goes to the question that you always lack at in these oral arguments is the justices want to know wh
're finally going to vote in favor of plans that don't provide decent insurance. it is kind of crazy. and it shows you, michael, just how far the debate has gone off the rails. the republicans don't know what to do about the 45 million americans without insurance. or the tens of millions of americans who couldn't get good insurance because of pre-existing conditions and scam jobs. so that's a big picture instead we're focusing on what jonathan rightly called a slice of the issue. which is a problem. it's a small problem. but we're not talking about the big issue which is how do we have a decent health insurance system for all americans. >> to your point and speaking of crazy, republicans have denounced president obama for his lack of clarity when it comes to a small piece of the insurance market. yet they have unveiled some of the many lies about the law. here's a sampling from just this year. >> you said it's the most dangerous piece of legislation in the history of the united states. >> yes, i think so. >> i'm asking if you think -- >> let's repeal this failure before it literally
and this individual had a gun. there was an exchange of gunfire. we don't know who was exchanging gunfire with the suspect. and in that exchange as pete williams reported, one tsa employee was injured, fatally. he's now reported to have been killed. at least one other tsa agent is injured, there's been video of him escorted into an ambulance and perhaps one or two other people, we don't know whether they are tsa employees or other passengers in the crowded area, injured as well. in a half hour there's going to be a news conference from lapd chief charlie beck and mayor eric garcetti and they'll have the answers to some questions still unknown at this point. was this individual acting alone? is that confirmed that he acted alone? we have a report about a half hour ago that the incident according to federal officials was described as being over. but there still is a pursuit and investigation throughout this crowded airport to see whether or not there was anybody working in concert with this alleged suspect. >> the gunman in custody. what eyewitnesses saying they saw and heard. eight and ten
